Half term is almost here and the children have had a very busy first half term in Reception. They have settled amazingly especially given we are in a middle of a pandemic, something we’ve never experienced before in teaching. They know the routines, behaviours expected and settled well into school life at Hartsbourne. Over the last few weeks we have been learning about significant individuals for Black History Month including Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Loïs Mailou Jones, Nelson Mandela and we’ve listened to Floella Benjamin’s story ‘Coming to England’. This week we have played with the remote controlled cars, created spider pictures, created patterns and made our own art inspired by Piet Mondrian. We hope you have a wonderful relaxing half term and see you on Tuesday 3rd November ready for the next half term in Reception.
